The India-Meso American connection

There appears to be an interesting discussion on the disreputable forum.

I don't know the first thing about mesoamerican history but the "connections" being paraded about don't sound very credible.

That said it is true that this topic has not been investigated in the recent past.

Actually most Indian perceptions of history especially those from the last 50 years are all highly eurocentric. That kind of thing was fine as long as Europe was our major trading partner, but this view does not sit well in a globalized world order where the economies of the Americas, China and India are the main drivers of growth.

Times change, and change should not always be unwelcome.

Maverick,

No problem. I was surfing the site, looking for a possible purchase when I came upon it and thought of your blog.

As as aside, are you the author of the Indian Science Fiction blog? The author was supposed to be a certain Aaftab Saddiq but now it shows you as the author. The writing style is certainly very similar.
